Israel

It is a shame that no one knows or cares about history. The US is disgusting in it's wanting to 'right' all the wrongs that have been committed in Israel, and have pressured that big disappointment, Sharon, into ceding land...

If anyone thought about it, they would remember that these most of those areas were won in a war, after the other side attacked.

BTW, I have several Palestinian Christian friends who now reside in the US. They used to live in Bethlehem, and when the PLO took over, they were so persecuted that they fled. There is a massive brain drain going on in PLO territory. Also, isn't it interesting that with all of the money that ISRAEL, not even counting everyone else, pours into this 'state' they still lack the most fundamental items, such as drinking water, sanitation etc. And yet, the leaders and terrorists cells are financed without a problem.

Israel has not been innocent in all of this, but much of the problem lies within the corrupt and ignorant leadership of the PLO (you call them whatever you want). BTW, after the recent land grab was announced, one of the leaders in the occupied territories said that now they are on a march to Jerusalem. Anyone who thinks for a second that the Palestinian state will be satisfied with the land is crazy. Their stated goal is to eradicate the Jewish state.

Not only did Israel win this land in a war, but the land that was originally provided via the Balfour (the original Israel in 1948) was wasteland, which Israel has restored, and they have built a thriving economy. What do you think would happen if the PLO would get their hands on all of this? The only democracy in the region, the only real economy in the region, the only country that could be considered first world in the region. Hmm, lets persecute them, and make them give the land back... WHAT IS BUSH THINKING? Bowing to pressure... Political expediency versus morally correct action...

BTW, now that Sharon has stepped up and done what is right, when does Bush cede back Texas and California to Mexico, and the remainder of the country to the nations of Native Americans that we took it from? Oh, and lets not forget the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in the late 19th century. Let's fix that... BTW, the way we fix that today is to give native Hawaiians land that is oftentimes useless... Why have we not been pressured to give back the Islands? Hmm... And those critics of Israel, Turkey, when do they give back the Armenian lands that were taken in the Holocaust in Armenia in which 1.5M people were exterminated? Need I go on?

What a load!

I am often perplexed at how evangelicals blindly follow this man when I ask myself the same question you ask in your post.

It is easy to understand; many evangelicals will blindly follow anyone who uses the right words...

We are called to pray for our leaders, and it is God who puts them into their position, I know that, but it does not say to just uncritically accept everything!

Hello gents. Nice post Ray. I just posted my thoughts, so I won't share them here, except to say this is the reason I will never vote for Condoleeza Rice for president.
